Let's just take the time to sit back and shake our heads at what a fucktard Rush Limbaugh is...

Bono is accused of cheating on wife
http://www.examiner.ie/breaking/story.asp?j=23476544&p=z3476648&n=23476728&x=


U2 frontman Bono has been accused of cheating on his wife by controversial US radio host Rush Limbaugh.

While discussing a list of "ubersexuals" put out by an advertising agency, Limbaugh cited Pierce Brosnan, Jon Stewart, Donald Trump, Bill Clinton and Bono as making the list - and then said that the Irish rocker has a mistress.

When a caller on Limbaugh's show asked what basis the host had for his accusation, he replied: "You people are just going to have to trust me on this."

A spokesperson for U2 scoffs: "This is so absurd it doesn't deserve a response."

Bono has been married to his school sweetheart Ali Hewson, the mother of his four children, for 23 years.

Rush Limbaugh should be thrown into an active volcano.

And then hung by U2 fans.

I hate that guy. He rants like there's not tomorrow about everything.
    Liberals are going to take away Christmas!
    Bono is sleeping with other people!

Chut up, and die.

Sorry if that was over the top. I listen to Rush sometimes for pure amusement.

And now that I've composed myself, I'll try to repsond like Rush is a rational person anyways:

It's none of his feckin' business if Bono is doing entire U2 crowds at a time, even. Why does he have to rag on Bono? What has Bono done to him? Make the world a better place? Open Americans' eyes to the rest of the world? Write incredibly catchy tunes?
Go to hell.
Seriously.
I get so mad when people start doing all these judgments on celebrities like they are supposed to appease to some higher moral conduct.
Let's talk about how Rush abused painkillers then.

if ever there was a time for a "Bitch, please." icon...

Limbaugh the drug addict wants to try and bring down Bono because neo-cons are scared to death of him. This is the best he can do? Shezus, even Lola Cashcow.. uh Cashman had better dirt.

best way to treat this is ignore it, same way you ignore anything else from a squalling 7 year old who's trying to get attention.

remember folks....
the difference between limbaugh and the Hindenberg?
one was a flaming Nazi gasbag....
and the other was just a zeppelin.

Limbaugh took this back before the end of the show. Whoever originally told him about Bono's affair emailed him and said that it wasn't confirmed.

It's probably a rehash of the Andrea Corr rumor from a few years ago.

We all know, of course, that Bono can't be cheating, because otherwise he'd be dead already. And Ali would be in jail. :)

I thought it may have been a leftover of the rumor that the lyrics to 'New York' were biographical.

Radio giant Rush Limbaugh may have lost some sleep this week after stating, and then retracting, on the air that Irish rock star Bono had a mistress.

"I worried about this all night long," Limbaugh said yesterday during his national broadcast. "I don't like saying things about people that aren't true."


You're having a laugh.

This isn't the whole transcript

RUSH: Folks, have you heard the new term "ubersexual"? Snerdley, you've heard it? I just heard it for the first time today. I know that there's metrosexual and heterosexual and homosexual, bisexual, animal sexual, trisexual, and all that, but I've not heard of ubersexual. Let me tell you what ubersexual is. Well, first, Snerdley, you tell me what you think it is. Oh, well, then! He says he doesn't know what it is, but (interruption). Okay, all you've done is heard the term. All right. Well, the definition for this -- we got three audio sound bites. Grab 15, 16 and 17 there, Mike. This is from the PR Newswire. So that should -- somebody is trying to create a new word here. Headline: "Bono, the Ultimate Ubersexual. Advertising Giant JWT Names Top Ten Ubersexuals - Men Who Ooze M-ness, Self-Awareness, and Self-Confidence (and Almost Always Get the Girl)." That's an ubersexual, and "J. Walter Thompson, the world's oldest advertising agency and the largest agency in America, has named the top ten men it defines as ubersexuals. These are men who embrace the positive aspects of their masculinity or M-ness (e.g., confidence, leadership, passion, compassion) without giving in to the stereotypes that give guys a bad name (e.g., disrespect toward women, emotional emptiness, complete ignorance of anything cultural outside of sports, beer, burgers, and athletic shoes). Marian Salzman, Executive Vice President, Director of Strategic Content, JWT Worldwide, points to ubersexuals in her new book, The Future of Men, as a significant segment of the young male demographic that advertisers and marketers too often overlook." Too often overlook? Too often overlook? There isn't one commercial on an NFL game that has anything to do with anybody who's over 12, including the beer spots. Anyway, let's go to the audio sound bites here because you'll find out who these people are. I mean, I've got the list here. Let's see what happens on the audio sound bites first. Who is this? Al Roker is interviewing Marian Salzman of JWT and Ira Matathia. They are the authors of this book, The Future of Men. Al Roker asks them, "What is an ubersexual?"

Little more of the transcript

MATATHIA: Excellence.

ROKER: Excellence.

MATATHIA: Excellence in everything. Fine wine, good cigars, understanding the finer things. That's sort of quintessentially it.

SALZMAN: An ubersexual is actually that much more macho. He's more willing to go out with other guys for dinner. He doesn’t care what people think. He's not worried that people think he's gay. He knows he's straight, and that's all that matters.

RUSH: Gee. 'Til they got to there they were talking about me! I always worry if people are going to think I'm gay. Well, no, look it, fine wine, good cigars? That's me. Understanding the finer things, confident, rather go out with the guys for dinner, doesn't care what people think? Man, that's me. Let's keep going. So Roker says, "You like the people they selected on the lists. You like Bono. You have Bill Clinton, George Clooney. Are these the classic ubersexual men?"

SANTAGATTI: In Hollywood, when you become famous, you're pampered a little bit too much and you can lose your ubersexuality. You gotta make sure you don't get too many facials, too many manicures, and you carry your own luggage every now and then.

ROKER: You're talking basically the alpha male. We want the alpha male.

SANTAGATTI: Yes.

HUGHES: What women really want is the great guy. If you read what the ubermale [sexual?] is really supposed to be, I think Bono fits, because not only is he madly in love with his wife, capable to keep up a commitment, he's passionate about causes. He's outside of himself.

RUSH: Here's the last question here. Roker says, "Final definition, what is an ubersexual?" He already asked that. Let's see what answer they give him this time.

SANTAGATTI: To keep it simple, the bottom line is, he's gotta be a provider. He's gotta be a woman -- a guy that a woman can rely on.

HUGHES: No, the bottom line is an ubersexual is a guy that -- that has a capability to be trusted, who's honest, who is respectful, and can make you a priority.

Wow. Thats just sick and none of his business. If this was true, then wouldnt some one else know before Rush? I mean, he's not my news source. Well I guess he knows exactly who to attack and how, because he's getting alot of attention from this.

Please.

And in the 80's Bono had a 3-some with Ali and Patsy Kensit while she was still married to Jim Kerr

And in 2000, Bono was sleeping with Caroline Corr.

Who else, people?

Fuck Rush. Fuck Rumours. Fuck Conservatives too. Bono loves Ali, Period.

Fuck Conservatives too.

It's a sad thing when blanket statements happen to good rantings. Bono certainly doesn't condemn based upon paltry ideological distinctions.

And with that, the political thread ensues...

You know Rush is going deaf, right? He probably heard someone say, "Alyssa Milano has a nice dress."

What the HELL??? What the fucking hell??? Bono has always been faithful to Ali...arrrggghh i can not stand Rush , how the hell would he know about Bono. If it doesn't come on some evangelical station who begs for money every ten minuets he probably doesn't watch it anyway..

By the way Rush, Lying , and slandering someone is a sin. Read that book your always so proud to thump.

Sorry about the language there...I was pretty aggravated. I guess what is most important is that we all know how much Bono loves his wife and his children....we don;t have to listen to some high and mighty pill popper who thinks is one rung below the Messiah.
